Alex Bruce Responds After Finding Out He's Been Released By Hull On Club Twitter Account

Alex Bruce Responds After Finding Out He's Been Released By Hull On Club Twitter Account
By PJ Browne Updated

Alex Bruce was one of a number of players released by Hull on Wednesday following the club's relegation from the Premier League.

In a statement on the club's website, Hull said:

Alex Bruce heads a list of players who will leave the Tigers once their contracts expire at the end of June.

The Club has confirmed its ‘retained’ and ‘released’ lists, with Bruce set to depart after almost five years at the KCOM Stadium. The defender made 104 appearances in that time, helping the team to win promotion from the Championship in 2012/13 and 2015/16.

That his departure from the club was going to be announced today certainly came as a surprise to Bruce, who only found out via the club's Twitter account.

You got to laugh.

It was the second tweet mentioning Bruce's departure. Shortly after announcing their retained and released lists, Hull also thanked Bruce for his service.

This was all without Bruce realising that the club had announced that he would be leaving the club.

Curiously, it seems Bruce did have prior knowledge that he would be leaving Hull. Over the weekend the defender, who spent the latter part of this season on loan at Wigan, tweeted that he would be leaving Hull when his contract expires.

It was perhaps the timing of the announcement rather than his departure from the club which caught the former Ireland and Northern Ireland international off guard.
